OpenSolaris 2010.03 was supposed to have been released earlier this month (in fact, originally it was supposed to be known as OpenSolaris 2010.02
and released in February, but then it slipped to early March). However, March is coming to an end and there still is no sign of OpenSolaris 2010.03. Oracle, which now owns Sun Microsystems, has also not provided us with any comment on the situation nor have they addressed the OpenSolaris community and their discussion
We've known that Oracle is to make some Solaris / OpenSolaris changes
, but all signs have been that they would move forward with the OpenSolaris 2010.03 release in March as planned. OpenSolaris 2010.03 will supersede OpenSolaris 2009.06
that was released last June.
OpenSolaris 2010.03 is to be based upon a revision to OpenSolaris Build 134. A preview build of OpenSolaris Build 134 was made available at the start of this month over at Genunix.org
, but no new builds have been made available since -- either for OpenSolaris Build 135 or the 134a that the final release will likely be based upon.
There's still a few days left for Oracle to deliver this release on time, otherwise we may be looking at OpenSolaris 2010.04. We are awaiting official comment on the matter.
